Yes, I always try to carry an extra clip
No, I never carry an extra clip
I have some 7.62x51 ammo in clips but don't own a M14 to use them with
so I don't carry them. Someday I may get a M1A and a Magazine Reloader I can use them with then I will probably carry them. I have been thinking of getting some clips for my MAK91 and a reloader because it would be easier to carry clips then extra Magazines.
I always carry an extra magazine...not really for the added capacity...as most altercations will be over within the capacity that is in the firearm....I carry an extra to magazine to clear any malfunctions, etc...which if happens is more detrimental than any amount of extra capacity the magazine can carry...
and numerous have already corrected on the difference between a magazine and clip...
--people ask why I carry, and I show them this picture. I think it says it all.--

Two spare mags (G19) always. Always. I'd carry three if I could find another spot on my belt.
How about, Sometimes? Sometimes I carry an extra magazine but not usually. No option on the pole for that.

One spare mag, mostly in case of magazine failure.
At least 1 extra, for all the reasons stated before :)
I carry a spare mag to 2 reasons. One being weight balance on the belt and second i wish i could give credit on this quote "If your unlucky enough to be in a gun fight and need more ammo, you REALLY need more ammo."
Hey...I only counted 11 "Clip" Quips.
I expected more actually.
I normally carry two extra magazines.

I'm not really a wheelgun kind of guy, But that is a sweet looking Smith.
When I carry my XD .45 I don't carry an extra mag, I figure that 14 rounds is plenty. When I carry my Kimber Pro Carry, i have 7 rounds in the gun and a spare mag on the weak side.
Yes, generally I do.
I wonder just how many keystrokes are wasted online correcting someone's grammar, spelling, or terminilogy each year?
We all understood the question, right ?????
